First you have to understand something important about motor brushes. That is the only difference between all motor brushes is their size (brush diameter and contact wire length). This includes fan motor brushes, water pump motors, power tool motors even automobile alternator brushes.
You can also find brushes where you might not think to look.

If you can get even close to the same size as the old set you can file the new ones down to fit. I've done it time and time again.

Your best bet is automotive electronic stores. However you might find them at local auto parts stores, hardware stores like Home Depot (look in the section where they have all the small parts bins). You might also try Tractor Supply. I know they are in Alabama but not sure if there is one close to you.

Remember you can modify the length of the wire also. If the old set has a small contact point on the end of the wire just remove it and solder it to the new brush wire.

I hope this helps you out.

Found the brushes on ebay. I'm not advertising, but these brushes look to measure up. The measurements are 25/32"x7/16"x1/4"

Im trying to find brushes for my electric motor in my husky air compressor mod# 417-270

I have not been able to find brushes for your type of compressor. I find a close match on ebay and shave/sand to size. Measure your brushes. Search ebay for "carbon brushes" looking for best price and size needed. Make sure that the armature is still good because the brushes will wear very fast if arm. is bad. Good luck

I have an H1506FWH Husky 6 gal 1.5 hp compressor that won't build air pressure. While running I noticed a change in the sound but it kept running. However, I no longer had much pressure. Now I can't get...

Locate the piston housing and remove the outer plate 4 screws
then tap on the next plate and when you remove it ( its the reed plate) you will most likely see a hole in one or more of the reeds

Husky pancake runs in reverse

I am a little confused here ... I have a Craftsman pancake, a Craftsman 6 hp (same compressor design) and several other name brand pancake compressors at the job. The compressor doesn't care which way the motor runs though mine all run in the same direction. As long as the piston goes up and down, the reed valves know when to open and when to closed based on the pressure. It sucks in from the 'room' on the down stroke and blows into the tank on the upstroke.

Yours isn't doing this? If it is creating a vacuum in the tank, I would have to say someone put the valves in upside down.

This is very curious.

You could reverse the black and white wire but as I understand the physics of it, it will not matter where the hot wire is since it is AC. The motor may be reversable but I'm thinking it is probably not in this case. That costs extra to make into the motor.

Please inspect the valves to make sure they are capable of 'inhaling' (the site will delete the other word I used) on the down stroke and 'exhaling' into the tank on the upstroke.

Please let me know what you find out.

Thanks for your curious question at

Portable oiless compressor wont pressurize

If there is pressure at the pump, either:

1) The tank check valve isn't opening (it's located where the line from the head enters the tank - usually extends into the tank, and the the pressure switch unloader line comes off of it as well)
2) The pressure switch unloader is bleeding off the air. This is a small valve on the side of the pressure switch. It should close when the compressor is running and open when the compressor shuts off to bleed off head pressure.

Piston snaped on my husky 1.7 hp 32 gallon

I have had sad service with Campbell Hausfeld. You can go to their website, type in the model number, then ask for recalls on that model. My guess is there is no recall.

If not, you might consider buying a replacement compressor motor to mount on that tank.. The tank is too good to throw away. Try
